Martyman declares victory! Things got a bit messy, but he successfully baked his first loaf of banana bread. It was touch and go there for a while—especially after he forgot to add the eggs. If you missed my initial post on this, Martyman had to pull the hot pan out of the oven, pour the […]
I’m pretty much the Anti-cook. Luckily when my lovely wife, Deb, leaves Martyman and me home alone, she also leaves us with a big pot of soup. Or, as is the case this week (she’s at the Convergence Conference in Reno), she left us a giant bowl of crab salad. Unfortunately, five days of crab […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2577: Martyman gets today’s post.
The proof copy of Time Is Irreverent arrived today! I love the silky feel of the cover. The interior looks great too—at least it did for the few seconds I got to see it. Martyman quickly grabbed the book from me and declared that since he is the star, he gets to look at it […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2433: Martyman loves his Minnesota Vikings, but there is only so much an action figure can take.
Marty’s photo of the day #2400: Martyman tries to make everyone think he’s an angel, but I just caught him red-handed messing with the reindeer again. “Bad Martyman! Put the reindeer back, now!” Sorry. I have no control over him. . . . Really. It’s like having a little kid in the house.
As Martyman fans know, our hero loves to dress up for the holidays. In fact, just a few minutes ago, Martyman walked into my office and asked if I would take his picture, so he could include it in the thousands of Christmas cards he was mailing out. I was just about to click the […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2356: I apologize to Martyman fans. I’m well-aware that he’s been missing from my posts for well over a month. I’ve been so busy putting the final touches on my new book, “Time Is Irreverent,” that I just haven’t had a spare moment to set up any shots. In fact, […]
On Wednesday, my wife made me a big pot of chicken and dumpling soup, before leaving to teach weaving classes in Portland. That means it’s just the dogs, Martyman, the Republican Jesus, and me in the house until Monday. I can cook, if I have to, but I have been busy working on various projects […]
Martyman is now on the ground in Puerto Rico, helping with the hurricane relief efforts. He had stowed away in the carton containing the paper towels Donald Trump tossed into the crowd. When I asked Martyman how he was able to know which roll to hide in, so he’d actually be thrown by our egomaniacal […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2323: Martyman is in his big chair, all excited to watch the Minnesota Vikings football game. And, of course, being a political action figure, he’s taken a knee, so he can protest police brutality toward blacks, during the National Anthem. I don’t have the heart to tell him that “taking […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2307: Martyman is all excited, because I gave him a $5,000.00 bill. “With all this money, I can impress the ladies,” he said. “Maybe I can even get a mail-order stripper-bride, just like Melania Trump! Did I say stripper? I mean ‘high-class model-bride.’” Poor Martyman is in for a letdown. […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2259: Numerous people have been requesting the return of Martyman. I apologize for his long absence, but he has even less of a social filter than Orange Temper Tantrum Man. Consequently, he doesn’t understand that there is a fine line between criticizing our deranged supreme leader and saying something that […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2074: A: This is your Martyman B: This is your Martyman on Trumpcare Any questions?
Marty’s photo of the day #2071: Yay! I have finished writing my new science fiction comedy novel (or at least I have it ready for an editor). The book even has a title: Time is Irreverent. Yesterday, I mailed out the first copy of the manuscript, and I let Martyman check it out before I […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2063: Watch out Martyman! Here’s what Montana’s Republican candidate for Congress, Greg Gianforte, said before going out to shoot massive numbers of prairie dogs with Donald Trump Jr.: “What can be more fun than to spend an afternoon shooting the little rodents?” When the Republican Jesus heard that, he thought, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2147: If you remember where we left off yesterday, Martyman had a new body, and was getting his clothes washed. This morning, before I put Martyman’s clean clothes back on him, he insisted that I take this picture of him, impersonating Ebby Calvin “Nuke” LaLoosh, from his favorite movie, Bull […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2146: If you remember where we left off yesterday, Martyman had taken a terrible fall and broken off both of his legs. Fortunately, years ago, I bought a backup body, should something ever happen to the original. As long as we were starting with a new Martyman body, I decided […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2145: Oh, nooooooooooo! Martyman and I were setting up a shot this morning (it was going to be really funny), when our hero lost his grip and fell from the back of a chair and broke off both of his legs. But don’t worry fans. We can rebuild him. We […]
Marty’s photo of the day #2132: I wasn’t sure what I was going to post this morning. Then, as I looked through the photos on my hard drive, I came across this one from when we took Martyman to New Orleans. Martyman, of course, had a blast. He picked up this little dolly and danced […]
